Police commissioner for Guwahati

After years of will-it-won’t-it, the Assam government is all set to appoint police commissioner for Guwahati.

The announcement echoes from Governor JB Patnaik’s speech after unfurling the national flag at the Veterinary Playground in Khanapara.

Patnaik said that the commissionerate would be set up soon to firmly deal with the rising crime graph in the city.

The government assured the Guwahatians of the police commissionerate in the wake of the 2007 serial blast. But the process got delayed.

Chief minister Tarun Gogoi a few months back said that the police commissioner would be appointed after the Republic Day.
